Battery Life and
Performance
Optimisation

Battery life can be affected by various factors such as device settings, environment and usage patterns.
Understand these factors to use your battery more efficiently and for a longer period of time.

Factors Affecting Battery Life

Environment

Battery consumption increases in areas with weak or
overlapping signals or with increased screen brightness
under strong sunlight or any other light source.

※ Galaxy offers Adaptive Brightness to optimise screen visibility based on the light intensity
of the environment.

Usage Pattern

Galaxy’s AMOLED Display has a high contrast ratio that
will increase battery consumption. Increased screen
brightness, longer intervals before screen timeout,
high-performance apps, streaming high-resolution content,
and location services or other allowed services will also
increase battery consumption.

Enable ‘Power mode’

When the battery is running low, enable ‘Power mode’ to extend battery life.

Once ‘Power mode’ is enabled, background apps will be restricted from Wi-Fi and mobile data,
and energy-consuming features like Always On Display will be disabled to extend battery life.

You can adjust CPU speed, brightness level and background networks to your preference.

※ When ‘Power mode’ is enabled, background data restrictions will apply to all apps and location services may also be limited.

Clean up unused apps and features.

Check battery usage and close unused apps.

Change Display Settings.

Turn display off by pressing the power button when the device is not in use.
Set ‘Screen timeout’ to a short interval.
Lower your brightness. The brighter the screen, the higher the contrast ratio,
which leads to higher battery consumption.
